Shenmue I & II launches on Xbox One and PC

Today, "Shenmue I & II" launched on Xbox One and PC. The package is the "remastered" collection of the original games which came out years ago. The compilation still contains original features like the captivating jujitsu combat, investigative gameplay, role-playing elements, and odd mini-games. Keep in mind that Shenmue I & II isn't a complete remaster. The visuals are mostly the same.

The Shenmue series is set in a real-time open world that includes a proper day-and-night cycle and weather changes. Players take a thrilling voyage across faithful recreations of Hong Kong and Japan in a tale of revenge and mystery. Both of the titles are regarded as cult classics, and Shenmue II is one of the most requested games for Xbox One backward compatibility even to this day.

You can purchase it for $29.99 on retailers like Amazon or the Microsoft Store.

  • I hope both Shenmue I and Ii get fully remastered via an update later on. Just checked the Microsoft store to buy it on PC and it only says it's available only on Xbox one not PC... 😶. Hopefully it's just a listing oversight... Otherwise I'm going to have to wait until it's steam or gog or humblebundle. Because these game will no doubt have fan made remastered hi-res textures.
  • Most PC games don't get put on the Microsoft Store, so I don't know why you're surprised.
  • 😶. If it's on xbox than it should be in the Microsoft store for PCs. Don't really need to explain the ramifications of lack of store click throughs do I?
  • Can't wait to get mine for the One today.
